has Vandy been rejecting people or do they usually reserve their rejections until the end?

They've been rejecting a few, but LSN looks like mostly Accept and WL

Ohh, psshh. I thought you were able to somehow track a priority piece using only the receiving address or something. I was about to enter into a stratospheric level of imminent decision neurosis.

sorry. i don't know any secrets you all don't know. i'm expecting it because...i want it.

...decision neurosis is only imminent for you? i spent the last 2 days shooting myself in the foot for my thesis because i can't think about anything else...

Hello friends -- I got a Vandy WL note in the mail today, just thought I would post it here. I'm a little above the GPA median, a little below the LSAT median. Didn't interview or write any optional essays. DM 2/12.

EDIT: Also, non-traditional, 8 years out of UG.

Bummer. You're in at NW and some other great places, so that should take the sting out a bit.

LSN shows a DM 2/12 who was an accept, so maybe that is better news for those of us who are still waiting. I figure a ton of these letters/packages will arrive tomorrow through Friday.

this shouldn't mean anything new. LSN has 3 different responses for this date this year. i am nervous, but someone getting a waitlist on the same date doesn't make me any more nervous. didn't someone just explain that schools are not necessarily inclined to group similar decisions, and that vanderbilt is especially unpredictable in this respect?

It's called rationalization.

From the patterns I've deduced... from 2-3 data points... it seems that they are simultaneously working through two tiers of applications, one of admits and one of waitlists. The admit pile appears to be lagging about a month behind completion dates, with [probable] admits from early January finally getting the nod. The waitlist pile is larger and lagging by about two months, with the [probable] waitlist applicants from early December finally getting consideration.

Fuck. Me.

Either way, I figure we'll know by tomorrow. Those Priority Mail boxes ought not to take very long to arrive, lol. I've taken the latest lunch break the past 2 days at work just so I can rush home and check the mail (my mail man usually comes later in the day).

If it doesn't work out at VULS for you, you should consider a career in statistical analysis. well done, sir. well done.

I was talking about the DM date. Not the completion date. If that conversation was also happening, then I apologize.

In fact, this is good news to me.

for those accepted what is your likelihood of attending? what would it take to get you to pass it up? barring the obvious HYS(C).

As was I, I'm also DM 2/12. I am taking note of a pattern of completion dates corresponding to the DM 2/12 bundle. You appear to be in the admit category.
